Post 7-Eleven
The concurrent pursuit of R-12 and P-12 awards has been interesting, thus far, having wrapped up this third month of action.  I'd almost forgotten to do it, in fact - the old habit of only pursuing one long ride per month being the "norm" in some ways had m...

Blame Jeremy
My previous post probably has a lot of folks assuming many things about me beyond what the post actually describes.  I can imagine these culminating into a picture of an unshaven version of me wearing all wool, including shorts with genuine leather chamois,...

Keeping it simpler
So, I really wish I'd've stumbled upon this video before I'd made  THIS  post back in April of this year.  This, I suppose, might be best explained because of my lack of boating experience, but, looking at the final result I feel this strong sense of "ooohh...

Mighty Hot & Peculiar
The June 200km ride... always a good time.  Things like gloves, warmers and ear covers are finally put away and even the early morning hours of loading up the car and preparing to go is easy.  The sun rises early and sets late.  The birds are out.  The road...

Just be.
In keeping with the "mini-post" theme, I'm blogging now about periods of time as opposed to distinct rides or events.  I'll have to see how long it lasts - my mood sometimes dictates this sort of thing, and lately the blank page has been a bit of a stumblin...

This is WAY better than no post at all, eh?  Mini-post for my most-recent ride and return to the exciting world of ACTUALLY RIDING a bicycle... wow.  Gasp!  Amaze! The Border Patrol Express is quickly becoming my go-to, easy-to-do, no-excuses training route...

How far we've come . . . and how I haven't really followed.

Kent's Bike Blog: The Thoreau Calculation
kentsbike.blogspot.com

I was in college the first time I really read Thoreau, working my way through Walden when I suppose I should have been working my way throug

Got the impression that the employee's personal relationships may have trumped customer service. Saturday night, 6:30-ish: wife and I visited from out of town, went to the bar to order carry out. We were greeted by the bartender with the usual coaster toss-out, but coasters were retracted when he realized we were ordering to-go and not staying. He took our order, payment, told us it would be about 10 minutes and never returned to check on us. While we waited, another customer came up and asked for a beer list (this is a brewery, after all), and a different bartender flatly pointed at the wall as he walked by, as if to insinuate "duh.". We finally got this bartender's attention long enough to get a couple glasses of water. This may not seem like a big deal, but I don't care where a person goes: when a customer orders $30 of carry out at the bar, the bartender's next question is "would you like a drink while you wait?". Even a water. When a customer asks for a beer list, at a flippin brewery, you stop and start selling your beer to them. EVERY customer is a potential tip. But, as I hinted at the beginning, these employees appeared in a hurry to get back to chatting with each other, drinking their own drinks, eating their own food, messing on their phones. On a Saturday night. This is a well-regarded brewpub without many locations, and their beer and food IS good... but without customer service and a welcoming atmosphere, they might as well close up the store and just put the beer in bottles to save us the hassle. These guys need a visit from corporate and need to shape up their staff, or those decisions will be made for them, because it's clear: if you have exclusive beers and great food, and it ISN'T wall-to-wall with at least a ten minute wait on a Saturday at 6:30pm, something isn't right.
